For my fellow thirty-somethings, let me present you this video game flowchart.
A resource, if you will.
Chances are, you’re married, with kids, and keep yourself busy with your daytime job and volunteering at church. So when you do have a moment to play some video games, deciding what to play is vitally important. There’s no time to waste! High scores, epic quests and level ups await!
Here’s a fun flowchart to help you pick the perfect video game to play:
Church tech staff and volunteers have SO MANY different areas where they have to use visual media, including worship lyric backgrounds, blog posts, social media updates, promotional postcards, banners, bulletins, newsletters, and whatever other project you have taken on. The question is, where do you get your free stock photos for all of these goodies?
Unless you have a full-time staff or an iStockPhoto subscription, you are probably always scrambling for some kind of stock photography to use. Flickr seems like a great place to get free photos, right? What can be the harm in grabbing a couple of those images for use? Hmmm… well the common issues are lawsuits, loss of your website, and even legal troubles.
Recently, I was talking to a friend who works at a non-profit. She is passionate about what she does. She is talented and has experience that qualifies her to do her job. She gets along well with her co-workers and genuinely loves serving the people of her community. She is, in short, really good at what she is doing.
However, lately when we talk, I hear a note of tiredness and perhaps frustration in her voice. She is overworked and her organization is understaffed, and as a result important things sometimes fall through the cracks. Her work is never done, and often crowds into her weekends and even her rare vacations. Because of her amazing level of commitment and dedication she runs the risk of burning out, which would basically be a disaster for her organization.
Burnout looks a lot like being in the wrecker’s yard:
I’ve had a couple of projects that I’ve been working on that required some simple free vector icons and some sort of hand-drawn arrows. A weird combination, I know, but I came across a few different vector icon downloads that I found to be pretty snappy.
Have you downloaded any awesome free vector icons?

Here’s what I’ve found:
Throw-in some wedding brides and you’ve to yourself an Internet success:
I’m a professional video editor and I am starting to edit on my iPhone and iPad. This sounds strange and almost absurd, but it’s true. The latest release of iMovie 2.0 for iOS editing on your iPhone/iPad makes video editing fun and simple.
Have you ever used your iPhone to edit video?
Here are three reasons why I’ve begun editing video on my mobile device, tell me what you think:
Jon Acuff is a New York Times Bestselling author and creator of Stuff Christians Like.
While he spent 15 years working with the biggest brands in the world (did we mention he was a New York Times Bestselling author?), he took some time to talk with us—not a real powerful career move, but we’re grateful.
In this special ChurchMag podcast, we talk with Jon Acuff, about Jon Acuff and ask Five Questions of Jon Acuff.
As any web developer will tell you, although most people are working inside of a web browser, the experience does differ—although only slightly.
The infographic below, breaks down the difference between Mac and PC users. I found it a little humorous to see how much these statistics reflect the generalized stereotypes of PC and Mac users. It makes me wonder why Microsoft tries so hard to buck that trend. If that’s your user base, then that’s your user base—embrace it!
Which do you use—Mac or Windows (sorry Linux users)?
Within the realm of blogging and social media for seventy8 Productions, I get to be the one that dreams of the vision, calls the shots, and puts it into action. The process from a great idea to implementation is simply limited by the amount of time I can put it together. It is great to see these dreams come to fruition and then to see them become successes.
A corporate digital marketing strategy is different. The process is not as streamlined. And not everything I think is a great idea actually gets made.
This week quite a number of us are recovering from our Thanksgiving feasting and perhaps from less than stellar nutritional choices. So the clever folks at Desirable Body are offering SuperSized superheroes as a simple and timely reminder, that we need to be mindful of our eating choices this Holiday season.
